Supplier directories, like the now very well known and market leading Worldwide Brands wholesale directory, are becoming more and more popular with online resellers – in particular those who sell on sites like eBay and Amazon. But why is that so – especially with traders selling on some of the most competitive marketplaces online?
Wholesale Directories are Easy
The main benefit to finding suppliers through a directory is the ease of use. Directories like Salehoo and Worldwide Brands list over 8,000 wholesalers and dropshippers each, and millions of products that you can search through by keyword. That makes it super easy to find a product and compare sellers on price, quality, etc.
With so many suppliers easily found, competition is intense – which drives prices down and enables traders to re-sell even on highly competitive sites like eBay for a profit (all be it, not usually a large one).
The other main advantage is that all the suppliers in directories are fully checked before being added – the directory editor will place test orders and visit the warehouse of each supplier to check they are legitimate before adding them. That means you don't need to worry about being scammed.
Wholesale directories are easy, safe and offer products at competitive prices. The only downside is that you need to pay to be a member.
